All schools in the UK need to be aware of Data Protection and privacy issues. Schools who receive state funding and new Academies also fall under the scope of Freedom of Information. Requests can be made for personal data of pupils, students, parents, teachers or governors under DPA and anyone can ask anything under FOI.
We offer a range of training solutions starting with a one hour online session covering both DP & FOI from just £20 through to a full compliance audit of your information handling practice or a half day briefing for all the schools in your area.
The company has as directors a solicitor and a former teacher who specialise in the law relating to information handling. In the past 8 years we have delivered nearly a thousand public courses and many in house courses including courses specifically for schools.
